I think letting people sit on and otherwise fondle is a policy. While I said they were unguarded, in fact there were several MOTUS folks in the immediate vicinity. If they didnt want people to sit on the bike, it was only a couple or three step to walk over an tell us to stay off. I never heard a word, even when the missus climbed on behind me so she could check out its two up abilitities.
I am lusting badly after this thing. Too bad is almost certainly waaaay out of my price range. The only bad thing I saw was the luggage seemed a bit small for two up touring. It did however appear to be of Givi origin. Maybe the bags will be interchangable with other Givi bags making it easy to change sizes.
